    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    Units: US | Metric

    Crunchy Topping Variation

    • 1 cup whole grain cereal flake (like Wheaties or Total)
    • 1/4 cup wheat germ, unsweetened
    • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
    • 2 tablespoons butter, diced into small pieces (or use Smart Balance)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 375*F.
    2. 2
      Butter a 9" square baking pan.
    3. 3
      Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the macaroni and cook according to the package directions, until firm and slightly undercooked(8-10 minutes). Drain and set aside.
    4. 4
      In a large bowl, whisk the milk with the oange puree and salt.(and white puree if using-if using both use 1/4 cup each). Put half the macaroni into the baking pan and top with half colby(or cheddar) cheese.
    5. 5
      Next, layer with the rest of the macaroni, then pour the milk mixture over the top, finishing with the last of the cheese on top.
    6. 6
      If using Crunchy Topping Variation, use a rolling pin to gently crush cereal in a sealed plastic bag. Or, you can quickly pulse the cereal in a food processor. Add wheat germ and Parmesan to the bag and shake to mix.
    7. 7
      Sprinkle crumb mixture on top of macaroni and cheese and dot with butter.
    8. 8
      Bake 30-35 minutes, or until golden and bubbling.

      This is one of the few times that I wasn't making a mac & cheese casserole for a neighbor couple ~ This one was just for the 2 of us! Really enjoyed the inclusion of your 'orange puree' here, as it really adds a great touch! Even included the crunchy topping for a very memorable mac & cheese! Needless to say, it's a keeper!
